Wow,... how long is a piece of string. Could be dns or wins not setup correctly, could be group policies applying, could be the network switch has a fault or the cabling that hooks them up.

I cannot communicate with primary dns server 172.29.71.1 is there a way i can reset it automaticaly or manually


You cam try doing a power cycle. Turn off the modem, router (if you have one) and your computer. after 1 minute turn on modem first then router and computer. If you still can't communicate or ping the DNS it could be a firewall that is blocking it.

Can't receive my E-Mail


Depends on the (client) program you are using, but...


1) Test your WEB Browser (Internet Explorer or Firefox),
to make sure you can get MSN or Google.

This tell you if the network and the TCP/IP stack are
working properly.

2) If the network is fine, open you email client and check
your server setting for: POP-3, and SMTP.

These setting must match those specified by your
IP service provider.

Also make sure that the email login and server password
are correct.

3) Pay particular attention to the error messages you
get inside you email client, when it fails to access the
server. These should give you a clue:

a) Can't find server / invalid domain name ... etc...
b) Can't login ... user not authorized...
c) No network connection ... denied...

etc...

4) Server and domain name problems indicate a typo or
error in your POP3/ SMTP settings. These are sometimes
changed by the IP provider, so please check with them.
Also check the port numbers:

Port 110 = POP3 = Incoming mail server
Port 25 = SMTP = Outgoing mail server

are typical, but it really depends on th provider.

5) If you can't login, the login ID or password are wrong,
or your provider has closed you account, which they tend
do to with a nasty deliberation if you owe them money.

6) If the email program cannot connect to the internet at
all, but you WEB browser can, then you have a fire wall
problem.

Check these firewall, and disable them temporarily,
to see if it fixes the email problem:

The Windows Firewall: Control Panel === Windows Firewall
(disable it)

Any software firewall you may have installed, such as
Norton's, AVG antivirus...etc. Disable them too.

If you use an external router or residential gateway
to connect to the internet, such as SISCO, CVG, SMC

Log into the router using your WEB browser, and disable the
firewall.

7) Once you identify a firewall problem, you need to setup
exceptions for your email client.

8) If you cannot get any Internet, including the WEB,
then you have a different problem.

a) run the Windows Network setup wizard again,
from the control panel.

b) If you connect directly to the Internet through your cable
or DSL this should fix it.

c) If you still use a telephone modem, that has to be
setup as well.

d) If you use a residential gateway, barricade or router
to connect to DSL or CABLE, then you need to set
that up next using you WEB browser. Typical router
address is: 192.168.1.1

e) In the case of DSL you router may also need to be
programmed with you login/password info, because in
this case it is the router that connects and logs into
your internet provider's server, not your computer.
(your computer sees the router, not the provider.)

Anyway, not knowing what your exact problem is,
I think that I have covered the waterfront here,
hope it helps.

Please rate my answers.

Services You Can Disable


There are quite a few services you can disable from starting automatically.
This would be to speed up your boot time and free resources.
They are only suggestions so I suggestion you read the description of each one when you run Services
and that you turn them off one at a time.

Some possibilities are:
  • Alerter - Sends alert messages to specified users that are connected to the server computer.
  • Application Management - Allows software to tap directly into the Add/Remove Programs feature via the Windows Installer technology.
  • Background Intelligent Transfer Service - The Background Intelligent Transfer service is used by programs (such as Windows AutoUpdate) to download files by using spare bandwidth.
  • Clipbook - ClipBook permits you to cut and paste text and graphics over the network.
  • Error Reporting Service - Allows applications to send error reports to Microsoft in the event of an application fault.
  • Fast User Switching - Windows XP allows users to switch quickly between accounts, without requiring them to log off.
  • Help and Support - Allows the XP Built-in Help and Support Center to run.
  • IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service - You don't need this if you have other software to create CDs.
  • Indexing Service - Indexes contents and properties of files on local and remote computers; provides rapid access to files through flexible querying language.
  • IP SEC - Manages IP security policy and starts the ISAKMP/Oakley (IKE) and the IP security driver. If you are not on a domain, you likely don't need this running.
  • Messenger - Transmits net send and Alerter service messages between clients and servers. This is how a lot of pop-up windows start appearing on your desktop.
  • Net Logon - Supports pass-through authentication of account logon events for computers in a domain. If you are not on a domain, you don't need this running
  • Network DDE - Provides network transport and security for Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) for programs running on the same computer or on different computers.
  • NT LM Security Support Provider - Provides security to remote procedure call (RPC) programs that use transports other than named pipes.
  • Performance Logs and Alerts - Collects performance data from local or remote computers based on preconfigured schedule parameters, then writes the data to a log or triggers an alert. If you don't need to monitor your performance logs, then you don't need this service.
  • Portable Media Serial Number - Retrieves the serial number of any portable music player connected to your computer
  • QOS RSVP - Provides network signaling and local traffic control setup functionality for QoS-aware programs and control applets.
  • Remote Desktop Help Session Manager - Manages and controls Remote Assistance. If you are not using Remote Desktop you don't need this service.
  • Remote Registry - Enables remote users to modify registry settings on this computer.
  • Routing & Remote Access - Offers routing services to businesses in local area and wide area network environments. Allows dial-in access.
  • Secondary Login - Enables starting processes under alternate credentials. This is what allows you to run an application as another user.
  • Smart Card - Manages access to smart cards read by this computer.
  • Smart Card Helper - Enables support for legacy non-plug and play smart-card readers used by this computer.
  • SSDP Discovery Service - Enables discovery of UPnP devices on your home network.
  • TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper - Enables support for NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) service and NetBIOS name resolution. This should not be needed in today's network environment.
  • Telnet - Enables a remote user to log on to this computer and run programs, and supports various TCP/IP Telnet clients.
  • Uninterruptible Power Supply Service - Manages an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) connected to the computer.
  • Universal Plug and Play Device Host - Provides support to host Universal Plug and Play devices
  • Upload Manager - Manages synchronous and asynchronous file transfers between clients and servers on the network.
  • Volume Shadow Copy Service - Manages and implements Volume Shadow Copies used for backup and other purposes.
  • Web Client - Enables Windows-based programs to create, access, and modify non-local files across the Internet.
  • Wireless Zero Configuration - Provides automatic configuration for the 802.11 adapters
  • WMI Performance Adapter - Provides performance library information from WMI HiPerf providers.

How to access your home PC files remotely


There are a couple of ways of doing this. Here are a couple of my favourites. All of these require you keep your computer on.

1. Opera Unite
If you install the freeware browser Opera, then create an account with them, you can start Opera Unite, an online service for accessing files and services from anywhere. After you have added the File Sharing application from the Unite sidebar, you can configure the application. Choose to add a share location and choose your main hard drive (generally C:). Then, change your password and make sure that you set your Opera Unite account to private and check that File Sharing is password-protected. Then simply navigate to the URL that Opera provides (generally username.operaunite.com), enter your username and password and then you'll have full access to your files. Note that you will need to keep Opera running on your Computer

2. FTP server. *Only recommended for advanced users
By running a FTP server software like FileZilla on your home computer, you can create a far more powerful file sharing experience. Now, first up, you should go to DynDNS.com, sign up for a free account and then create a Dynamic DNS host. Next, download and install the DynDNS Updater and run on your computer. Now, to access the files that you have configured with your FTP server software, simply use your DynDNS hostname that you created in the sign-in process into Windows Explorer or Internet Explorer (or any browser) with the ftp:// prefix instead of http://. However, if your computer is on a home network behind a router, you will need to configure that also. Set up a port forward (generally Port 20,21, and 23) to the computer running the FTP server. The other advantage to this is that by finding out the server's local IP address (open Run, then type cmd, then type ipconfig, and write down the IP address shown) you can also access the files from the server within your network, simplifying the file access process greatly.

3. Orb 2.0
This is one of the slickest and smoothest methods. Simply download and install the Orb desktop client from Orb.com (also create an account and enter your details into the Orb client), then add any folders you want to share. Then, allow some time for it to index your content. Now, from outside your network, log in to Orb.com with the account you created and click on the Applications button at the top of screen. If you want the music, videos, photos or documents you specified in the setup process, choose the appropriate application, or choose File Sharing to access all of your files at once. Simply navigate the folders as if it was your local computer and you will be able to use them flawlessly. You can even access other physical drives like your CD drive online.

4. TeamViewer
This is a brilliant VNC replacement application. Simply create an account, then install the client on your computer. Also, enter your account details into the client (click the button at the bottom right of screen) and write down your 12-digit ID and password. From here, you have several options remotely. I recommend that you should link up your account first. Navigate to login.teamviewer.com and login, then add a client using the ID and password from your computer. Now, whenever you login to your account, you wont have to remember your ID/password. You can install the client on another computer and connect with your account directly or login to teamviewer.com and use the Java-based applet to connect and use your computer as if you were in front of it.

These should work well when accessing your files.

Compaq PE2160 with LINUX OS


Check to make sure all of your paths in the mount command are right. I had this issue a week ago and after putzing with it for a few days I noticed I was trying to mount a non-existent share. Fixed my ***** command and it worked right away. Other things to look at: Check your /etc/exports on the server and make sure the shares are in there. Also make sure that they are active by restarting nfs (/etc/init.d/nfsd restart (may be different now, that worked years ago)). Last, double check your mount command on the client. Make sure the share exists and the server is pingable. If this doesn't help, you may want to try searching on some linux specific forums. linuxquestions.org is good, or if you have ubuntu, ubuntuforums.com.

L cannot run 2 compters at tihe or can L run on either one or the other.from the same modem?


  1. If using a dial up modem you would need to network the computers together with ethernet cards and a cross-over cat5e cable and set up shared internet connection. One would be a server and one a client server would have to be on all the time for client to access the net.
  2. If using broadband (DSL or Cable) you will need a router. Wired or Wireless. Connect modem to router, router to computers, re-boot the computers, then reboot the modem and router so the modem can assign IP addresses.
